Bacon Cheese Potatoes...
Thursday, May 10, 2012
The other day I mentioned on my Walking on Sunshine Facebook page that I was trying a new recipe for dinner. I was pretty excited about it and shared with everyone a picture as a tease for today's post.
AND a lot of my friends and followers started getting excited as well. And I'm still pretty excited because it turned out really good. Actually better than good.
And it was so easy and you make these potatoes in your CROCK POT.
Bacon Cheese Potatoes
Note: You can either pre-cook your bacon or put it in raw. I have tried it both ways and like it better pre-cooked. I always cook my bacon in the oven...less mess!
Begin by lining your crock pot with aluminum foil.
(I sprayed my crock pot with a non-stick cooking spray and then sprayed the aluminum foil).
Slice and the potatoes.
Dice the bacon, if you are adding it raw, OR dice the pre-cooked bacon.
Start layering everything in the crock pot, beginning with the potatoes, then the bacon and cheese, sprinkling with salt and pepper; I was able to get three layers.
Dot the top layer with the 2 tbs. of butter.
Cover with another piece of foil AND THEN THE CROCK POT LID and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 6 hours.
My crock pot cooks really fast and I always check after a few hours and if the potatoes are fork tender, I know they're ready.

Transfer the potatoes from the crock pot to a serving dish, top with fresh parsley or chopped green onions and get ready to enjoy the most DELICIOUS potato casserole ever...
I was really skeptical with this recipe. I did not think it would work, silly me...obviously we enjoyed the potatoes and I will be making this again soon. I can see making this for a large group of people.
So EASY and so DELICIOUS. It doesn't get any better than that!
